Description James Ralston 2002-07-30 02:42:56 EDT
I was installing Limbo (7.2.93) on my laptop.  I did a Custom install, and then
did the "Everything" package set.  After anaconda finished installing the final
package (zsh), it then threw the following exception:


Exception Occured (sic)

An unhandled exception has occurred.  This is most likely a bug.  Please copy
the full
text of this exception or save the crash dump to a floppy then file a detailed bug
report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 757, in handleRenderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 149, in renderCallback
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 610, in nextClicked
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 150, in gotoNext
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 215, in moveStep
    rc = apply(func, self.bindArgs(args))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 936, in doPostInstall
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/syslogd.py", line 87, in stop
    os.waitpid (self.pid, 0)
OSError: [Errno 10] No child processes


I couldn't save the crash dump to floppy, as I can't have the floppy and the
DVD-ROM drive installed at the same time.

P.S.: "Occured" is misspelled; it should be "occurred".

I experienced the same thing last night with limbo2 on a dual boot laptop 
installing the minimal install.  I did a minimal install a second time and the 
problem occurred again.  My laptop had grub previously and I was trying lilo 
with both of these installs.  When I chose my regular install with grub it 
worked fine.

Fixed this so it should not die now.
Comment 3 David Lawrence 2002-09-05 18:28:24 EDT
Verified fixed in latest tree.
